Blah. I was hoping to get some non-serious answers. I'm probably going to put half of that into investment. I don't even use money. 
 
@shadyspace: For me to "manage my finances" apparently. To me that sounds like spending half of it. ;)

College might seem tempting but if he invests at 6% and assuming the $6,000 is all he puts he'd have the following: 
 
  • Age 30 -  $12,073.1788
  • Age 40 -  $21,621.2245
  • Age 50 -  $38,720.3201
  • Age 60 -  $69,342.196
  • Age 70 -  $124,181.312
 
He'd make some serious bank, and enough to retire well.

The problem is, where would I find such a high interest rate for an investment?

Worst case you get 4%, but there's a few places in NYC that give you close to 6%.

If you're looking to invest, find a credit union.
If you are looking to buy cocaine, also find a credit union.
 
You can easily launder the cocaine money and make it look like you are buying heroin.

Go on a shopping spree. A lot of people will tell you to invest it, but most of those people wouldn't post it on the forums and would do the same exact thing. Do it!!!

I'm disappointed in the Giant Bomb community.  It took entirely too long for somebody to suggest hookers.

It's only $6,000 and he's 18. This is the lamest advice you can give someone. Blow it like there's no tomorrow. It's $6,000 that's nothing. I earn way more than that each year and I'm only a light casual worker. You save up and have budgets all your life. When you're 18 you have a chance to waste some time and money. Take a holiday overseas or buy a car!

@Spoonman671: I assumed that hookers were a given, and he was asking for other things. Telling someone they should buy hookers is like suggesting they buy food and water.

Ask your father why he did it, and if he meant to. Ask him if he wanted you to do anything with it.  
  
If he says yes, perhaps follow his direction.  It was a gift from him and if he had a purpose for it, than that is what the money should be used for. 
 
If he gives you a blank slate though, my suggestion is that since you're 18, have fun. Go on a trip, buy something you always wanted, put some in the bank for some fun later on, enable yourself to not have a part-time/full-time job for a while.

This is a really strange reply. You talk as if a year of work is nothing and I sure hope you're making more than $6000 in a year.  
When I was 21 I was making $60000 a year and spending all of it. Now that I'm older, wiser, back in school and poor again I really wish I had been putting away $6000 a year when I was able to. Wasting money usually comes back to bite you in the ass.
